is homophobic. i think he's a calculating non-big got who used bigotry to get votes. same with karl rove, now coming out of the closet. we know his adopted father is believed to have been gay. what's worse exploying the big gory of others to increase your own power or being a big got? >> it's all calculations. this topic relates back to the gun topic congress can't get it passed while americans die because it's a political calculation. john: i love that you go back to the gun topic lee. brilliant. >> i think it's worse to be calculating about it, but that's the reason the tide is turning is because of that calculation because more americans are coming onboard with gay rights and the republican party are learning that homophobic stances don't fly with post americans. >> if the gop embraces most americans, where are the haters going to go? >> you just join the tea party i guess. i feel like the republican party right now is me when i was 13 years old and listening to michael jackson's man in the mirror. i knew i had to make a change. rob portman came out like pro gay marriage, did you not say a
wedding rings and all other parts of straight life. the karl rove winning elections and the abolitionists wing are in for a prolonged situation. 2014 will be tough, but once these two gangs, the palin and rove crowds, have to meet again in 2016, it's not going to be pretty and sure as hell isn't going to be a marriage and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, welcome to "the ed show." i'm michael eric dyson. elizabeth warren takes a stand for working class americans. michele bachmann has seen the light on infrastructure and might be getting off the appalachain trail and heading back to washington and a southern pastor makes a radical stand for justice. but tonight, we start with the tenth anniversary of the ed show. let's get to work. the shock and awe campaign was launched against -- a decade later, the forces behind with trying to revise that history. today, donald rumsfeld tweeted ten years ago, the long, difficult work of liberating 25 million iraqis deserve our respect and appreciation. put aside for the mome
catch that? karl rove said it's not paranoid to think that black helicopters are going to swoop in and steal everybody's guns. this kind of rhetoric is out of touch and it's behind the times. joining me now is maria teresa kumar. >> we are indeed. the american public is a bit ahead of congress and i think you're going to see, because of the public pressure, more and more congress members falling in line to do the right thing. i was getting a headache listening to some of these people talk about paranoia. look, congress, i think, for the first time during my lifetime, seems to be moving toward putting some commonsense things together with regard to some kind of gun legislation. not to take anybody's gun. nobody is trying to take anybody's guns. i have family members that need to own guns because of where they live and things that are happening in and around their own homes, but they are not jumping up and hiding and listening at night for the black hawk helicopters. we've had ridiculous things happen in schools and legislators are now listening. >> when you look at the facts, mar
. >> there was karl rove on this week saying he can see a republican nominee the next republican nominee sporting gay marriage. so this whole -- whether you're talking about immigration or gay rights, the whole thing has completely surpassed the rush limbaughs and fox newses of the world. they're waging this losing battle. if you listen to rush, they're not trying anymore. the poll numbers last week on gay marriage were just kind of amazing compared to ten years ago. and you know, they can see the writing on the wall. this is a social movement and it's come and gone, basically. this issue has basically been put to rest. and it is yet another key social issue that the conservative movement has completely lost. >> no amount of oxycontin will help that goal. >> stephanie: some may try. here's the moment you were talking about, karl rove on abc. >> can you imagine the next republican candidate saying flat out i'm for gay marriage? >> i could. >> stephanie: yikes. that's when, as you pointed out, he was talking about -- serious karl rove discussing the politics of the easter egg roll. >> that was on fox o
quote . . . bravo senator. karl rove said that he could imagine a 2016 gop candidate in favor of gay marriage. wow. but will the supreme court's decision bring ground breaking change. joining me to discuss this is our political friend christine pelosi, chair of the california democratic party women's caucus, and she shares the party platform when they adopted marriage equality. what is at steak? >> most immediately at steak are the 18,000 same-sex couples which got married. so what the court could do is rule narrowly on behalf of those california couples and say look, you got married because the supreme court recognized the constitutional right to marry in california, we find those marriages to be valid, we are throwing out prop 8. so the most narrow victory would be a victory for the 18,000 same-sex couples. more broodly of course the court could recognize the constitutional right to marry in the 14th amendment, and it's prohibition against denying liberty rights and demanding equal protection. >> michael: is the narrow victory a victory? just the 18,000 cases? >
the evidence. they browbeat people. they would karl rove as their political hench men. the vote was scheduled on the eve of the elections deliberately. i don't want to let democrats off the hook. 29 senate democrats voted to authorize the use of force. some apologized later like john kerry. some brave people came out against it as you showed. barbara boxer, dick durbin, paul wellstone, but there is a tendency among democrats that really worries me. it's to act as though maybe their patriotism is possibly going to be called into question and they're always appeasing these bullies who question their very americanness and we saw that over and over at 9/11 and particularly in the run-up to war. it was a little bit frightening to be against the war as i was. we weren't really singled out and ridiculed, but we were right. they will go down in history as having done the wrong thing. it requires a lot of vigilance to make sure nothing like that happens again. >> given what the congresswoman said earlier, are we still at risk despite their bold and creative witness of a march to war of this magnitude
when jeb bush tried to do that with immigration, look at the pushback that he got. and today karl rove wrote a piece in "the wall street journal." he said this. "understanding that today's technology has the shelf life of a banana, silicon valley republicans are working to modernize the gop's voter file in advance of next year's midterm." he didn't right anything about modernizing the gop policies, just their list of voters. >> well, this is going to be their problem, too. because the tea party element is that they don't think strategically. otherwise, they would have control of the senate right now. they lost colorado, denver, nevada, and they are not thinking strategically and really don't care if the republican wins so much as whether the republican keeps to their very hardcore view of issues like immigration. and like abortion and other things like that. but the party -- when you you talked about abortion, the party has a lot more repairing to do. there are a lot of women who are anti-abortion. it was a contraception argument. the insults that came from members of the party and the
over the weekend. republican separate gist conservative karl rove saying surprising stuff about same-sex marriage on abc's "this week." listen. >> karl rove, can you imagine the next republican presidential candidate saying flat-out, i am for gay marriage? >> i could. >> it cuts off that quickly because he quickly tries to make a left turn to kind of get off the subtd, anna. but, anna, what do you make of this? you made some news this weekend on our own show "state of the union" 0 when you said on this issue the genie isn't going back in the bottle. what do you think that karl rove is acknowledging this? it. >> well, i think it, like me, he might be optimistic that's the case, that we don't have this play a large role in the primary. but i've got to tell you, kate, i think it might be possible that the question is no longer relevant. nobody asks in a primary or in a political race anymore, are you for or against it interracial marriage? it's no longer a relevant question. and i think the shift on this one issue is growing, increasing the approval so exponentially that by the time 201

the bus in public, right. >> oh, yeah. it's unbelievable. >> bill: sarah palin and karl rove, rand paul and marco rubio john mccain calling them whacko birds. >> yeah, i feel like he is the guy at then of scooby doo -- if it wasn't for those darn kids. it's not just enough to hate government. when you elect folks to government that hate government they destroy it. you would never put somebody as a ceo of a company who hated the company. >> bill: the other thing they came without a report this week which some people call the autopsy, which i love, which autopsies are performed on cold dead bodies that you know are not coming back from the grave. >> yes. >> bill: and they say we need to be the party of outreach. and the very next day reince priebus says we are the party that believes that marriage is between one man and one woman only. when 81% of the voters support marriage equality. so they are not the party of outreach. >> absolutely not. i saw this in the republican party in the '90s when i was rap. there was a lot of lip service reaching out to young folks, but th
